I've been considering swapping my JamMan for 2 headrushes.... at the
JM is set up as a 1-shot delay with some of the output externally fed back
the input with an expression pedal in the way to control the feedback.
gives me a looper with variable loop times (on the fly), variable feedback
But it's mono... for the price I could get for the JM, I could buy a pair
Headrushes. The two tap pedals could be wired into a single momentary
and my expression pedal is stereo... giving a STEREO looping rig with
time, feedback etc. Since the pedals are no longer the ones in the boxes,
it's made of actually becomes irrelevant.
In the end I decided against it... I _like_ the fact that the JM is mono.
getting the GT-5 my non-looped sound is "so" stereo that looping in stereo
well would produce mush. Having the loops coming back in mono creates some
separation. On the other had, I could put a mono output from the GT-5
pan pedal and loop in stereo... but I've already got 2 fader pedals and a
will be used to control master looper output (when it finally arrives at
store). I already have to sit down to control stuff! Does anyone else

Pink Floyd had the same problem when recording The Wall. ;)
